I gave up on you be overjoyed

You dont have to do the things that I like anymore
you can come home at what gour you want
you can stay awake on the street and never go home what do I care
Im tired of loving waiting worring and missing you
find yourself another hero I became history for you along time ago
I gave up daydreaming about you I burnt your photos I threw away your belongings
maybe it wasnt as eay as I thought but I have come to accept it
I gave up everything not just you everything that contains you

One Syllable

Is there anyone who knows me?
I am the secret that cannot be solved without living in it,
Even if there aren't many people who are unaware of me,
It is still hard to identify me.

Nightingles sung their songs in my language,
They fell in love with roses thanks to me,
And an avanchle from Taurus mountains fell into my heart,
But it cannot put out my fire.

There were sultans and kings,
Their destinies changed because of me,
I toopled them from their thrones,
I have unbelievable skills.

Wise people became uneducated because of me,
Wild people became nice ones thanks to me,
Selim * (ottoman king who is famous for being harsh) became tolerant because of me,
I am the one who spoils all the games.

I am the cause of fatal illnesses,
Even the most wise doctors couldn't find a cure to me,
Kerem burnt for Asli because of me (Kerem and Asli are like Romeo and Juliet in turkish literature)
I am the fire into which they threw prophet Abraham.

For my sake, the big mountains were pierced,
It was for Leila or Shirin (heroines like Juliet)
Farhad* made me strong ( a character like Romeo )
I am the strength, I am the power.

Rumi( famous persian philosopher) made his religious movements thanks to my chants,
Yunus (famous turkish philosopher) made people calm with my help,
But at the same time, some families were destroyed because of me,
I am the goodness, I am the evil and I am from God.

Prophet Mohammed was created for me,
All the blessings were for me,
I am the sweet talk of wise people,
I am the brightness on the faces of all prophets.

I have noone, no friends, no enemies,
I am invisable, no objects, no pictures,
I am easy to say, I just have one syllable,
I am located in a place they call 'heart',

My name is LOVE.

Poet : Cemal Safi

Do you know what is the best part of being with you

Do you know what is
the best part of
being with you?
To feel your warm
deep inside even
without holding your
hands.

Do you know what is
the worst part of
being with you?
To talk foolishly
about everything in
our every
convesation not
saying the word
running in my head "
I love you".

Do you know what is
the most exciting
part of being with
you?
To think same things
in the same time and
cry and laugh.
To miss you crazily
even you are here..

Do you know what is
the most painful
part of being with
you?
To share you with
many people even I
don't know
To envy childishly
everyone beside you,
talk with you.

Do you know what is
the happiest part of
being with you?
To walk with you
side by side on the
streets with the
doubtfulness of to
encounter a familiar
face
To get wet under the
rain persist of the
umbrella in my hand.
To wait for you with
a wild flower in my
hand..
To eat the same food
in the same place.

Do you what is the
most romantic part
of being with you?
to find you in every
page of books
To tell things to
the moon and stars
at nights I can't
tell you..
To find you in every
pages of book I
read, lyrics of
songs and poems.

Do you what is the
hardest part of
being with you?
To imprison my
indescribable
feelings that I felt
for the first time
into a boat in the
middle of the hope
sea cos of the fear
of losing you.
To accomplish being
friends not lovers
for years. To walk
barefoot on the
sharpest side of the
knife. Put my
eyedrops not salt on
my bleeding heart.

Do you what is the
only side affect to
be with you?

How can you know?

You were never with
me.

If you were with me
my hands would had
yours..

I wouldn't make up
my mind..

Wouldn't miss you
when you were by
me..

Wouldn't envy..

Wouldn't scare of
walking in streets..

Wouldn't get wet
under rains..

Wouldn't pour out my
problems to the moon
and stars, so drunk
in every song..

Wouldn't afraid of
losing you, would
jump from the boat
to the sea with my
bleeding feet..

And in each strike I
would scream your
name..

But you were never
with me..

YOUR MIND WAS NOT
WITH US OR YOUR
HEART

Love Means Loving Without A Reason

Love means loving
without a reason
Being addicted to
someone without a
reason
Melting inside,when
you look in his/her
eyes
Shaking with your
all body when you
hold his/her hands
Also not being able
to cuddle,due to
being too shy
Cause love means
being shy,in fact
But what is love ?
To die for it ?
To live with it ?
To love for a life
time ?
Or to leave
needlessly ?
What makes someone
addicted to another
one ?
Their beauty ?
Nobody knows the
answer of those
questions
Some love beautiful
ones,some love
special ones

i love you because

i love you because
you are the only
reason of mine to be
alive every morning
when i wake up
but i have thousands
of reasons to love
you

i love you because
you are the only
color in this black
and white world,
like out of an
artist's brush

but not an ordinary
color, a color that
outshones every
color of the rainbow

i love you because
you are like a
breeze that warms me
inside, you blow
slightly processing
into my bones
then you disappear
and leave, without
i could understand
where you came from

i love you because
i don't feel like
anything else, this
is such a natural
feeling that
deep within my soul,
as if waiting for
you since i was born

i love you because
i cannot think of a
life without you
instead of living in
this dull world
without you
i would kiss the
cold breaht of the
death
instead of not
seeing you again
i would prefer
turning my back to
life

i love you because
whenever i hear a
love poem,
you flow from the
verses
whenever i hear an
old song
the music flowing
from the guitar
chords bring you to
me

i love you because
you are always with
me
it's enough for me
to close my eyes to
see you
your delicate skin

i love you because
inside your eyes
thousands of stars
impales the darkness
of the night
when you are looking
at me i feel like i
am looking at the
stars above them

i love you because
my self belongs to
you
you can crease and
throw to the garbage
or you can put it to
somewhere near your
heart... my god!!!
i want to be
somewhere near your
heart

i love you because
you are you
but do you love me
for being myself???
who knows that?

i love you because
i love loving you
i love smelling you
i love touching you

i love you because
when your hair comes
away my hands
i am like have found
the heaven on earth
i once hold that
heaven inside my
hands
after a moment maybe
it will come away
for good

i love you because
i have a hope inside
me
maybe you put this
poem by your bedside
who knows maybe a
'red' rese beside it

i love you because
god has created you
while he was
creating the flowers
more beautiful than
the daisy
more noble than the
lily
sweeter than the
magnolia
smelling nicer than
the rose

i love you because
the angels envy your
beauty
and in the world
among the mortals i
guess a couple of
lucky could realize
this

i love you because
if i am with you
till i die, till i
disappear
i guess this would
be a punishment for
me
for not being with
you more...

i love you because
even the idea of
being loved by u is
beautiful and noble
to make a person
happy till the end
of their lives

i love you because
the verses are never
enough to talk about
you
i am thinking about
it as i am writing
these in a winter
night
i wonder how many
poets has written
thousands of verses
to talk about your
beauty

i love you because
your smile is like
the sun rise
makes me forget
anything
just stirs watch and
enjoy

i love you because
even after this many
reasons i could not
tell you how much i
LOVE YOU

I loved you my darling like that

    Love and happynes cannot be without you
    Stars becomes bow which sink to my heart
    If you are not with me all the world dissappears
    I loved you my darling like that

    If I dont see you one night moon falls down
    Bow goes to wrong way (miss) from target , and falls down from hands
    A horse which gallop ,little horse falls down
    I loved you my darling like that


    If only one part of your hair becomes white
    My blood gets cold at that moment
    You are my queen and I am yours king
    I loved you my darling like that

    I am sure that my heart is yours
    Are you fairy ? how you cruhsed me
    Not far away you are in my heart
    I loved you my darling like that

I AM LEAVING

Listen my love...

It's time to say
goodbye

Since the day the
world came into
existence it has
been grim and cold!

Like a medicine
we'll have to take
sooner or later

Its taste in our
mouth bitterish
stringent

At this time tears
and promises will be
empty

In an empty solace
we believe.

The curtains fall,
the film is over

The one we thought
would never end.

As you see we've got
nothing to talk
about anymore

Just sorrow in our
eyes.

This is separation
what we had never
expected

It's the twin sister
of death

I'm leaving! We'll
never see each other
again

This were our last
meeting

You'll start a new
life now

with your new
boyfriend

he'll kiss your
hands now

he'll whisper love
to your ear

Except for the
regret

what a shame
...there'll be
nothing left of me
inside of you

put out your
cigarette we can get
up now

10 steps later our
paths have to split

Don't! No don't cry

And don't say
anything to me

Cause even when
you're breaking up
one should stand
tall.

I'm leaving..yes I'm
leaving

We'll never get to
see each other again

This were our last
meeting

You'll start a new
life now

him with your new
girl/boyfriend

I would like to grow old with you

I would like to grow
old with you,
Let the years pass
by,
I want to know you,
and you to know me.

I want you to be
your friends'
as much as you are
mine,
and I want you to be
mine
as much as you are
your friends'.

Let us live
so that we learn
about the life,
and to support each
other.

We should cry on
each other's
shoulders.

We need to share and
we need to get bored
together,
so much so that we
should be bored of
getting bored alone!

We should celebrate
our
anniversaries/special days
at our home,
with one bottle of
wine and in our
pijamas,
or sometimes with
friends drinking
cheap beer...

We should live like
this..

And then, we should
have a baby.
Imagine, a living
creature that is
yours and mine!
We should pacify it
at night in turns..
You should sometimes
be a spoilsport,
and I should take
your turn.

I should be not
cooking because I'm
tired,
and you should break
an egg, grumbling.

When it's cold
outside,
we should spoon each
other in bed.

While the time
passes by fast,
we should have a
life well-lived and
with no regrets.
We should not be fed
up with each other,
despite everything.
All those days spent
together, happy or
sad,
they should be ours.

When our hair turn
grey,
or even when we lost
them,
we should leave this
city,
making sure the kids
are alright.

We should go settle
somewhere,
where you don't wake
up to a murder,
to a quiet town.

We should admire the
sea from our balcony
at night,
we should sit in our
rocking chairs.

You should ask me
for a coffee when
you come home.
The kids should come
visit us,
and we should
remember our old
lively days.

You should call me
"Sir" (or husband),
and I should call
you "Madam" (or
wife).

You should so love
me that all I've
written shouldn't
scare you.
They should make you
smile.

When we pass away
one day,
there should only be
some smile on our
faces.

In everything,
there should be the
pride of loving each
other...

Missed You

missed you...
leaving scracthing
my heart for so long
mising you is
drugging my brain
even though we dont
get together often
knowing that you are
with me
is warming inside of
me for long
i understand newly.
your absence,
get out of being a
stucked pain into my
heart
(appeared) as a
continually
emptiness
begining to the
mornings with
caressing you
in the evenings
putting everything
aside
but talking with
you, i miss them...
our playings
our walks
your sweet
naughtiness
your childish
offendings...
how you were strong
to others
while defending me
and how you were
tender
with a couple of
slitted eyes
when you leave
yourself to my
caresses
Even though i never
want you to go
to see that you have
to do that
and without saying
you those
to say 'go now'
'as soon as you
forget me, that soon
you will meet the
happiness'
haw hard to say to
you...
not to be able to
see you and maybe
after years
when we met
to want you to look
at me as a
stranger...
and to deal with my
heart that i forbid
another love

LOVE LIKE A MAN

I never loved you.
I loved, when we
sang songs at the
tired nights.
I loved, when you
smile to the flower,
I loved when you
look alike a rose.
Also I loved the
stars.
They stopped onto
your eyes on
September nights.
I never loved you;

I loved your
leaving, when you
put me on the road.
I loved the bullets,
when you shot me.
I loved to cry, when
you forget.
When I realize that
I was alone, I loved
my standing straight
on my feet.
I loved when I
collapsed, while I
remember you.

I loved being
without you like I
loved a bread.
I loved your voice
in July's Sun like I
miss the water.
At dawn, like a
rain;
I loved you like a
wind during the
night.
I never loved you.

I loved your
teaching songs to
birds.
I loved your talking
to the violet,
reminding the April.
The other name of
the Spring is not
alone.
When I fall down, my
blood from part of
my body,
And my weirdness,
when I feel chill.
The boys selling
gums, the new
released songs.

I loved your winning
sides, everytime I
lost you.
I fell on fire, like
the rose fell on the
sea.
I loved fire, when I
got burned like
this.
I never loved you.

I fell on fire, like
the rose fell on the
sea.
I loved fire.
I never loved you.
I loved fire.
I never loved you.
When I love someone,
I love like a MAN
!..

One night, a dear
went down from the
hill to your heart.
One night, It's like
a poem on matches
light.
In the middle of
everyone, from the
voice of loneliness.
From the fog of
morning,
A cruel of the
sadness,
Human beings from
your crying face,
Refreshness of the
pray,
The scare side of
the pomegranate,
Onto fig, olive and
heart,
Onto rose, and the
hope that I am
holding,
Onto scare, onto
you,
All the time onto
you, all the time
onto you,
I never loved you.

I loved when you go,
I loved the
universe, when you
come,
I didn't love when
you stay,
I was scared that I
was gonna be
addicted to you.
But anyway, I loved
to smile,
When I wave my
napkin from the
train that took you.
When the first snow
touched the valleys,
I loved how
beautiful your death
was,
When I killed you
inside of me.
I never loved you.

I loved, when we
sang songs at the
tired nights.
I loved, when you
smile to the flower,
I loved when you
look alike a rose.
Also I loved the
stars.
They stopped onto
your eyes on
September nights.
I never loved you.
When I love someone,
I love like a MAN
!..

I fell on fire, like
the rose fell on the
sea.
I loved fire.
I never loved you.
I loved fire.
I never loved you.
WHEN I LOVE SOMEONE,
I LOVE LIKE A MAN
!..
